A Dog Called Money

In this dynamic, globe-trotting mix of travelogue and music documentary, revered rocker PJ Harvey roams the world in search of inspiration for a recording project.


British alt-rock superstar Polly Jean Harvey and Irish war photojournalist Seamus Murphy set out to explore war-torn Kosovo, Afghanistan and the poor neighbourhoods of Washington DC, capturing impressions, sounds and ideas that served as the catalyst for her 2016 album, The Hope Six Demolition Project.

A supple mix of humanist travelogue and unique music documentary, A Dog Called Money moves between the far-flung corners of the globe and the sound-proofed recording box in London’s Somerset House – where Harvey would record her album in full view of the public – with Murphy’s vivid imagery matched by Harvey’s evocative, poetic musing.

“The film recalls the magic moments of Godard’s One Plus One, where the spark that turns a piece of music from an idea into its final, mercurial shape is captured in a thrilling document.” – The Quietus
